Illinois adoptive couple Craig and Courtney were blessed to adopt a baby girl through Lifetime’s Florida Adoption Agency just a few weeks ago! Here’s sweet email that they recently sent to our staff about their open adoption relationship with their daughter’s birth mother:
“From the day we signed our contract with Lifetime we started praying for two people, our future child and also the birth mom (or birth family) that would forever be a part of our lives. To us, adoption was more than just starting our family with a baby, it was starting our family by welcoming a whole other family into ours.
We are so lucky to have such a special bond with our daughter’s birth mom. Since spending four days together in the hospital, we have struggled to find the right words to describe how amazing she really is. From meeting her in the parking lot, to Courtney hugging her head and cheering her on during the c-section, to taking those last steps together out of the hospital and feeling like we weren’t ready to leave her, we have fallen more and more in love with her each step of the way. Today we can honestly say we love her just as much as we love our baby girl!”
